About this video:

Section 6.5.2 Exterior of the ComSOP requires inspectors to identify the type of siding on a building and inspect the siding, flashing and trim. This building was identified as having Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) siding, also known as synthetic stucco, by performing a knock test. EIFS typically feels hollow, flexes under pressure, and produces a distinctive hollow tone. In this video, we’ll identify and discuss some of the most common issues associated with EIFS.
